PHILADELPHIA MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERSPROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS WHEN YOU'VE BEEN INJURED
While motorcyclists enjoy the freedom to choose whether to wear a helmet or other safety gear, a rise in the rate of
fatal motorcycle accidents has been reported since the repeal of Pennsylvania's mandatory helmet law in 2003. The accident suffered by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was a famous example of the added dangers to motorcylists who elect to go without a helmet.
But many who make the choice not to wear a helmet tell us that their reasoning is that the only way to protect oneself on a motorcycle is to avoid the accident altogether. Many are convinced that even the best available safety gear is simply wasted effort in the event of a motorcycle accident. While we strongly disagree with this mindset, the point remains: no amount of safety gear can protect a motorcyclist from the negligence of other drivers, and motorcycle accidents frequently result in injuries which range from serious to catestrophic without regard to the safety gear used by the biker.
Tim Kennedy is a motorcycle accident lawyer who recognizes the special risks faced by motorcyclists on our roads, and the unique prejudices that are sometimes present among jurors, insurers adjusters, and at times even even police officers charged with accident scene investigation or reporting. Negligent drivers who fail to be attentive to the smaller profile of a motorcylce, or who cut off a cyclist as if he were not there and create an unavoidable accident, often swear that the motorcyclist was at fault -- as if the bike came out of nowhere, when it was there all along. The fact is, no matter how careful you are on your bike, the negligence and inattention of other drivers who are unprepared to share the road with you will place you at risk every time you take to the hightway.
Motorcyclists are at risk form negligent car drivers, overtired or inattentive truck drivers, poor road conditions, and all of the other hazards of modern commuting.
